When going into the Journal, clicking on a previous Paint activity, and seeing a thumbnail of my artistic excellence, I instinctively clicked on the thumbnail to resume the activity. This did nothing. I would have expected it to resume the activity the same as if I had clicked the Resume button.

I seem to remember we discussed this in a design meeting and everyone thought it was a good idea.

FWIW I let one of my sisters have a go on my XO and she had exactly the same instinct of clicking the thumbnail. Maybe it's a family thing :)

This is still unimplemented, I posted a rediffed patch.

  • keywords r+ added; r? removed
  • next_action changed from review to package

Would personally prefer if each widget had its own button-press-event handler or rename the common handler so it doesn't appear to belong to the icon. Reviewed + anyway, but please add a test case before pushing.
